Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site has it all -- lush forests, sublime lakes and dark skies. Generations have paddled, hiked, camped, and connected with nature and Mi’kmaw culture here. For thousands of years the Mi’kmaw people have lived with this land and petroglyphs, traditional encampment areas and canoe routes are still present.


Come for a paddle, stay for the stars! Explore Kejimkujik on your own for the afternoon and enjoy interconnected waterways, meandering trails and spectacular nature. Once darkness falls, join Parks Canada for an exclusive dark sky experience at the sky circle and wonder at the thousands of stars that light up the night. Kejimkujik is home to Nova Scotia’s only Dark Sky Preserve. Private Dark Sky program begins at 8 pm and can accommodate up to 48 people - and the cost is included in your Parkbus ticket.
